The Future of Astoria.
The future of Astoria was never
-so promising as it is at the present.
Various matters tend to make this
but none more plainly than
the operations of Mr. G. W. Hume,
who has now successfully inaugu
rated the wholesale method of
dealings here. If Portland has
12,000 people in trade it is safe to
presume that not more than X
of them are identified with
city holders of real estate
ployed by them. Men like
Mr. Hume, in business at Astoria, are
owners of the soil, and so laro-elv
interested that it is for their inter
est to build up the city. Astoria
will grow very rapid when she
anain takes a start, and in the re
cent events we think
we see tne i
beginning of the final start. In
spite of the weather, which has
been bad, Mr. Hume's place of
business has been thronged for the
most part of the whole time since
he opened here. Hum or shower
the goods come and zo. He has
inade two trips to San Francisco
buying goods since the first open
ing, he came up on the last
Ider, and has since telegraphed
three times for new goods, and
will leave again, by steamer, to
morrow, to purchase more. In the
line of groceries and provisions he
is prepared to fill any order at San
Francisco prices and freight only.
He has Irs own vessels, and will
do a considerable portion of Irs
own freighting. He keeps a
full line of ship chandlery, and fills
orders for anything dealers want,
.particularly oars, cordage; blocks,
etc. He sells Liverpool salt at
San Francisco prices ; has the
agency for various artiflws of ma
chinery, prominent among which
are Payne & Son's steam engines,
one of which is in constant use
in Tins Astoriax ofiice, and gives
"perfect satisfaction. These en
gines may also be seen at Mr. G.
W. Hume's cannerv, Win. Hume's
cannery, and elsewhere. We may
also refer to Fay's wood working1
machinery which Mr. Hume fur
nislies to order. One of the plan
ers is in tsse at his steam mill in
Astoria. "We believe it will run
snore lumber., and do it better than
any other planer in the market.
Cannerymen appreciate this new
"branch of trade at Astoria, as do
merchants .generally. The stock
-.of acids from the Golden city
chemical works is kept full all the
time, and a full line of turpentine,
varnishes, etc., is constantly in
store. The bark Rival, now fully
due, has 50 carboys of acids, TOO
oases of turpentine, 250 cases of
Star of the Columbia kerosene,
etc. This Star of the Columbia
'(150 fire test), is calculated to take
the lead in the market. Mr. Hume
has oil of lower grade (110 fire
test), btft the Star of the Columbia
he guarantees, and if it is ntwha't
it is represented to be, will take it
back and pay all expenses. So
with every article in the line which
The effect of this new enterprise
upon this city is beginning to be
quite perceptible. The steamers
that daily leave Astoria show in
creased bulk in their freight lists,
and dealers tell us that it is work
ing a revolution 'in trade generally.
IVbrings to 'this city purchasers
who never before came to Astoria
unless it was to pay their taxes, or
n-et a deed recorded, and .in -con-versation
with some of these we
are glad to hear sentiments uni
versally expressive of satisfaction,
and it cannot very well be other
vise3 as Mr. Hume is constantly
in the market, is one of the heavi
est buyers on the coast, and has
the cash to back his pur
chases, thus securing them at a
figure -which enables him to
sell at the very bottom notch.
